When I was in the English Gardens I was saddened to see that my ‘mum’s home that I purchased for her ‘visits’ had burnt down….Mother’s Day 2010…I gave my mum a few gifts.. you can look at those in this fun post HERE…(I’ll wait.. so you have a have a quick look….
O.K. are you back?
I was saddened to see when I walked by THIS was the site of mum’s ‘house’….
Maybe it’s the English Gardens in Assiniboine Park that’s telling me something… my days are just plain numbered here in Winnipeg… soon again I’ll be ‘homeless’ until I reach Nunavut!
This past Saturday… I went to the airport to pick up my Big-bro and sister-in-law at the airport! They were in town for the past 5 days at a conference.. They flew in early so that we could visit… We went to one of my favourite crepes places in the village.. and then drove over to Assiniboine Park to walk around for a bit! It was great to catch up… and visit… although next time I think they should bring my gorgeous nephews too!! 🙂 Here are some photos from our time at Assiniboine Park!
We walked through the new-nature-adventure playground….
Have to take a photo by the ‘banjo-playing-FROG’!another photo-op by the giant ‘yak’ on the hill? Yes, I do believe that’s what one should DO!
a quick snap of the park…. with the water-feature that pours into the sand box… so much fun!
Onto the English Garden… where we asked someone to take a photo of all THREE of US!!
Followed by some other ‘funny’ portraits… of Jamie and Dana…. (I made them play ‘model’ and I wanted to try out some stuff…and they did happily play along!) Dana…. 🙂 She’s the first gal that I could call Sister!… it’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since that day… ..Jamie… 🙂 the best big bro a gal could have!!! 🙂 Thanks for putting up with my many ‘moods’… I’m thankful to have you in my life! I think that they were trying to ‘escape’ my camera… but there’s little chance of that!!! (unless i’m out of batteries—side note: I still need to find my battery charger, still don’t know where I put it!)
Ten Years Married…and STILL holding hands!!
This is something I’ve been working on for a bit… a ‘new-home’ for Sarah on the Road…
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for the help and encouragement in creating this new ‘blog’ (I was like a fish out of water, still am but at least I’ve made it back to the water!) Two people I’d like to specifically mention are Jen and Lisa! It was Jen that helped me get off my butt and actually get a domain. (I had been wanting to do this for awhile…like probably over a year)… It came up one day when we were talking on Facebook and it came up and then she helped ‘walk’ me through the process of getting a domain and hosting…. Lisa has always been my ‘go-to’ person for blog help! In the past 2 years she’s been the one that has helped me create headers, set up my blogspot layout for me… and always around for me to bounce ideas off of… She listened to what I wanted.. and then went searching for a layout that would work.. and then set up the formatting of that layout for me… (wordpress is still kind of a foreign language to me!) lol Without these gals… this would have NEVER been might never have happened so quickly! 🙂 thanks again!
I’m not saying it’s perfect… I’ve done a bunch of ‘tweaking’ but am happy with the result! Not to say that there might be other changes in the future when I have internet again at home! But for now… I’m happy with it!
Sorry for making everyone ‘update’ their feeds on their blogs.. (it’s a pain I know!)
My first trip to Sargent Sundae… It was DARN good!!!!
